Well, no supertall has ever been built in the USA and not eventually turned a profit. It seems that if you can muster up the money to build it then it will, even if takes time, be profitable.

Happy April fools' day!

Board Meeting at Dunkin Donuts?
Raising of funds by donation?
Utilizing school kids?
Supply of 9.8 billion donuts in exchange for naming rights?

The rumour is that that's not the completed project.

I hope Chicago Spire will not have severe mold and rust problems when they start construction again.

I'm currently selling my condo, and I received marketing emails once in a while from my @properties agent; well, this is what I received today...



THE CHICAGO SPIRE PROJECT


Dates: Currently, the project completion dates remain unaffected as time allowances for unanticipated events were included in the original schedule. We are currently working with some of the world's top financial institutions to secure project financing for the next phase of construction. The Chicago Spire will be in position to be afforded the first credit when it becomes available and we have every reason to believe that this will become reality in short order.

Earnest Money: Buyers' Earnest Money deposits are held at Bank of America in segregated interest-bearing accounts assigned to each individual Buyer. The accounts are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), are held harmless from any developer debt and are unable to be accessed for construction costs.

Construction Status: Approximately 70% of our construction materials' procurement is bid out. A significant body of construction work has been completed to date including:

* Foundation and substructure works by Case Foundation Company;
* Ramps to serve the site, to and from Lake Shore Drive completed by Lorig Construction; and
* Utility relocation work (substantially completed).


Construction/Liens: We announced recently that due to the global credit crisis, a slowdown in the rate of project construction would be necessary.


Shelbourne Development has been working closely with our contractors, advisors and design professionals over the past two years as this project has come to fruition, and while there have been some lien filings, we can assure you that everyone has been extremely well paid.

An investment in the last remaining undeveloped parcel of land on Lake Shore Drive represents an investment in the future of one of the leading cities in the world today and Shelbourne remains committed to realizing this vision.
Chicagoans and visitors to the city can discover for themselves the truly impressive nature of this development by scheduling a private appointment to tour the 20,000 sq. ft. Calatrava-designed Marketing Suite located near the building site. Contact your @properties agent to schedule an appointment and see for yourself this magnificent addition to the Chicago skyline.

The Chicago Spire by Santiago Calatrava.
The most significant residential development in the world.
Exclusively marketed by Savills (L&P) Inc and @properties, Chicago, Illinois.
